    • A BIOGRAPHY OF ALICE RICHARDS BRADFORD, by Larry Overmire (9th great grandson), Aug. 2008:

      Alice Richards was baptised Apr. 7, 1629 in Pitminster, Somerset, England, the daughter of Thomas and Wealthean (Loring) Richards. She immigrated with her parents on the ship "Mary and John" about 1630.

      Alice married William Bradford, Jr., the son of Gov. William Bradford of the Mayflower, on Jan. 28, 1649/50 in Plymouth.

      Alice gave birth to ten children: John, William, Thomas, Alice, Mercy, Hannah, Melatiah, Samuel, Mary and Sarah.

      Maj. William Bradford succeeded Myles Standish as the chief military man in the colony. He was the commander of the Plymouth forces in King Philip's War. He was wounded in battle at Narragansett Fort and carried the musket ball in his flesh the rest of his life. He also served as Assistant Treasurer and Deputy Governor of Plymouth, residing in what is now Kingston on the south side of Jones River in the same house his father lived in from 1627-47.

      Alice died on Dec. 12, 1671, at the age of about 44, and was buried in Plymouth.
